Home Movie

Home Movie is an interactive new media documentary that uses 3D animation, documentary film, as well as video game mechanics to rebuild and explore disappearing neighborhoods from my home in the westside of Detroit. Each chapter contains multiple interactive scenes,  immersive 3D environments, and personal-historic vignettes (both film, and animation) guiding the participants through the entangled spaces. By moving between documentary and narrative the work speaks to the nebulous nature of memory, both kept to one’s self and shared within the collective.

Home Movie OST

The work combines music nostalgic of my childhood, inspired by Detroit house music, R&B and video music from the mid 1990’s. Each piece was arranged and recorded  utilizing field records from each neighborhood captured throughout the project.

What is your name, Video Installation, 2018.

The work is a simulation of a loading character screen within a MMORPG. A vast virtual world looking towards the participant, occasionally asking the participant in the form of a text box, “what is you name”.

Selfie Trough

Selfie Trough is a part of theoretical design series critiquing contemporary obsession with gadget fetishism. The designed object comments on the combined internet fascination of foodie and selfie culture by placing the user and desired food object in the same frame, allowing the user to quickly and conveniently post pictures of their recent meals!

Wrath

The video was a product of my fascination with connected consciousness experienced within a digital realm. Like other recent works, Wrath, thrusts the viewer into a hyper realistic world ripe with transgressive situations. These images invite the viewer into a mixed reality space, while playing with notions of nostalgia. The landscapes draw inspiration from forgotten environments surrounding my childhood home in Detroit, as well as the surreal environments found in early video games.
